During the hot summer months, the sun in addition to our skin, can also damage our hair. The truth is that the sun’s ultraviolet rays can “burn” our hair, which is usually more noticeable when it comes to dyed hair. Of course, damage can also occur to natural hair since the sun dries it out and makes it duller.
Apart from the sun, the sea salt and the bleach from the pool water are definitely not good for our hair. So, what exactly do we need to do to protect them?
#1 Watch your exposure to the sun
Sunbathing is of course not forbidden, but make sure to avoid it during the hours when the sun becomes dangerous – that is, midday. Your sunscreen should also become your best friend and in addition to your skin, it is good to use a product with sun protection for your hair.
#2 Protect them with an imaginative hairstyle
A hair bun with a scarf or a hat is ideal for summer. This way, you reduce the exposure of your hair to the sun to a very large extent.
If there is a time of period when our hair needs as much hydration and care as possible, it is definitely summer. For all the reasons we already mentioned, our hair often becomes dehydrated, frizzy and difficult to manage. Thus, make sure to moisturize them with oils often enough to restore them and keep them shiny, healthy and hydrated.
Our team suggests you use the CP Hair Oil Elixir which contains a mixture of nourishing oils that strengthen, thicken and revitalize all types of hair. Also, you can combine it with the CP Hair Oil #Shine which revitalizes dull and tired hair, detoxifies and restores the skin and scalp and visibly improves the elasticity of the hair so that the hair regains its lost vitality.
#4 Avoid heat
Now is the time to give your hair a break from all the products and styling tools that strain and weaken it. Choose easy and comfortable hairstyles such as a ponytail, a hair bun, braids or leave them natural after you take care of them.

What is the No. 1 “problem” with our hair during summer? We’re sure you guessed it… Humidity, and as a result, frizz. It goes without saying that we have some unique tips for this eternal summer issue of ours!
First, what you need to know is that the drier, dehydrated and unhealthy our hair is, the more likely it is to frizz. This is because dry hair absorbs extra moisture from the air, causing it to puff up.
Some tips to avoid frizz from humidity:
#1 Start with a haircut, cleaning the clippers and the unhealthy part of your hair.
#2 Make sure to deeply moisturize your hair both in the shower and afterwards with moisturizing products that will make it much more “manageable”.
Our team recommends you try CP Hair Oil Lover which is a dry oil consisting of a rich blend of herbs that rebuilds and repairs while strengthening and nourishing damaged ends. Although it is based on various vegetable oils, it does not cause greasiness in the hair but moisturizes it in order to make it look more shiny, healthy and silky. You can also use CP Hair Oil Lover to create a wet look that will amaze!
#3 Choose a hairstyle without heat and even better, a hairstyle where your hair will be gathered. This way you will ensure that the result will last much longer.
